Bowie State Teams Up With the University of Maryland to Train Predoctoral Fellows in Education

Bowie State University, the historically Black educational institution in Maryland, has entered into a partnership with the College of Education at the University of Maryland, College Park in an effort to boost the number of Black students who pursue doctoral degrees in education.

The Research Institute for Scholars in Education (RISE) training program will provide students with research mentoring on language and literacy topics from University of Maryland faculty and academic mentoring from Bowie State University faculty.

Up to 48 college juniors will be accepted into the predoctoral fellows program. After attending an eight-week summer and two-week winter research seminar, the fellows will participate in two semester-long research opportunities and receive academic mentorship from faculty and peer mentorship from graduate students on either campus.

The program is funded by a five-year, $1.1 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
